Bunkering Convention Conference Seminar Emcee Singapore | 2012 Brochure

 

I had the privilege of hosting the Singapore International Bunkering Conference (SIBCON) 2012; the World’s Largest Bunkering Event. A biennial event, SIBCON sees 1600 participants from over 50 countries all around the world. SIBCON 2012 ran from 16th to 19th October: it consisted of a Golfing Challenge, Conferences (with leading topics in the Bunkering Industry) and closing with a Joint Oil Spill Exercise (JOSE) that’s unique to SIBCON- participants got the opportunity to learn how to tackle an oil spill in the Port of Singapore.

SIBCON 2012 saw some very important people; we had Mr Lui Tuck Yew (Minister for Transport), and super star speakers Aaron Cobb (Global Director, ExxonMobil Marine Fuels), Thomas Knudsen (CEO, Maersk Line, Asia Pacific), Arsenio A. Dominguez (Vice Chairman Marine Environment Protection Committee, IMO), Jeff Lantz (Director, Commercial Regulations and Standards, US Coast Guard), amongst many others. It was an honour being in the company and having the opportunity to meet these influential individuals.

It was an extremely interesting event for me to host, not to mention a challenging one! I had no knowledge about the Bunkering Industry and had to do a ton of homework before I took on the job, but I can honestly say that while the research I did made a difference, I learnt so much more on my first day alone. By the end of it, I felt like quite the expert (especially with industry jargon) ;) Okay that was an exaggeration. Haha.Convention Conference Seminar Emcee Singapore | Melvin Ho | From Sound Console area

I must add- SIBCON 2012 wouldn’t have gone so well if it wasn’t for the fantastic work by IBC Asia – the event took up the entire convention centre at Resorts World Sentosa and he managed to run it without a hitch. Extremely impressive!

 

Big thanks to IBC Asia for having me at SIBCON 2012! I look forward to working with you again and putting newly acquired knowledge to good use! :)

I was super excited to be chosen to launch Bacardi Singapore’s Cocktail! It combined all the things I love in life- hosting, drinking and meeting people :P You see, right now when you think about Singapore’s signature drink, you always think ‘Singapore Sling’ because that’s pretty much all we have. So the people behind Bacardi decided it was time for Singapore’s next signature Cocktail!

This launch involved three local but very different Singapore influencers working with established bartenders to create three new Bacardi-based Cocktails. They came up with: Old Man and the Sea, Tiki Taka and Kampong Sour. In October 2012, the public, along with the media, were invited to the Launch Party to have a taste of these delicious new drinks (those who didn’t make it got to try it at popular nightspots!).

At the Launch Party, everyone was treated to watching these cocktails being made by the masters themselves and I must say, they worked hard to feed the excited crowd who kept wanting more! Post-drinks, attendees gave their votes and the voting was then open to the public via Facebook :)

The eventual CHAMPION: KAMPONG SOUR! It’s now being sold at several bars and clubs, most notably Zouk ;) You guys should really go have a taste of it- it’s soooooooo good.

Big thanks to Bacardi for hiring me and congratulations on such a successful Launch! :)
